"Measuring Sleep, Stress and Wellbeing with Wearable Sensors and Mobile Phones”

Sleep, stress and mental health have been major health issues in modern society. Poor sleep habits and high stress, as well as reactions to stressors and sleep habits, can depend on many factors. Internal factors include personality types and physiological factors and external factors include behavioral, environmental and social factors. What if 24/7 rich data from mobile devices could identify which factors influence your bad sleep or stress problem and provide personalized early warnings to help you change behaviors, before sliding from a good to a bad health condition such as depression?
In my talk, I will present a series of studies and systems we have developed to investigate how to leverage multi-modal data from mobile/wearable devices to measure, understand and improve mental wellbeing.

Akane Sano is a Research Scientist at the MIT Media Lab Affective Computing Group. Her research focuses on mobile health and affective computing. She has been working on measuring and understanding stress, sleep, mood and performance from ambulatory human long-term data and designing intervention systems to help people be aware of their behaviors and improve their health conditions. She completed her PhD at the MIT Media Lab in 2015. Before she came to MIT, she worked for Sony Corporation as a researcher and software engineer on wearable computing, human computer interaction and personal health care. Recent awards include the AAAI Spring Symposium Best Presentation Award and an MIT Global Fellowship.
